Pussies beware, Chaingunn is here! Yes, this is a new release from a new band, but don’t expect to hear Hammerfall, Arch Enemy, or Cradle of Filth worship. This is take-no-prisoners ass-kicking Heavy Metal!
Fans of Metal Church, Accept, and early Overkill rejoice! You should find many things to like about the Chaingunn debut. Coming in at just a little over 25 minutes, this EP smokes from start to finish. All 5 songs are catchy as hell, with great guitar work (from none other than Jason Tedder and Brian "Hellstorm" Williams of K-Octave/October 31), smooth bass lines, INSANE drum work, and vocals that are a perfect blend of Bon Scott/early Bobby "Blitz" Ellesworth, and Udo Dirkschnider. If I had to complain about anything it would be the production. While it’s far from shithouse sounding, the drums could be a bit lower in the mix and the vocals a bit higher. But who’s to complain? Great new Metal releases are hard to come by nowadays! Oh yeah, did I forget to mention there is an insanely good Black Sabbath cover of "Voodoo" for the EP closer? Get the Chaingunn EP before it gets you!
